With over 25 famous soundtracks to his name, and a long-standing collaboration with director Steven Soderbergh that includes the soundtracks for Out of Sight and the Ocean's trilogy, Ivor Novello Award-winning Northern Irish electronic musician and composer David Holmes - a member of the band Unloved, whose music has been used extensively in the television series Killing Eve, - returns in 2023 with Blind On A Galloping Horse, his first solo offering since 2008.
With songs of hope for an age of uncertainty; love songs to leap the barricades to and a comprehensive roll call of the great and good - those "dreamers, misfits, radicals, outcasts" that we’ve lost and just a few who’ve managed to cling on in the churn of the 21st century, - his interrogation of the last decade includes time spent watching a decaying, fraying Britain visibly buckling in real time while tending to his own battles with mental health.
Holmes’ soundtrack to this inquiry is at times claustrophobic, often euphoric, driven by the rattle and snap of analogue drum machines, wild oscillations of droning analogue synths and the voice of Raven Violet which beguiles and commands in a way that could part oceans.
And there are elegiac electronics evocative of an endless Europe where pulsating, crackling rhythm tracks fuse with dreamlike textures and the underground pulse of psychedelic therapy to form something unique that feels nothing less than radical.
